Defensive Player of the Year

Oakland Raiders Free Safety Charles Woodson 

The Silver and Black are finally starting to see success. After years of misery and rebuilding, the Raiders are finally playing football again. Al Davis would be proud.

39-year old Charles Woodson is the Raiders defensive leader and he’s showing that heart plays a factor in the game of football. Despite being the oldest defensive player in the NFL, the 18 year veteran leads the league in interceptions, recording five at the halfway point of the season. Takeaways aside, Woodson has also managed to record 24 tackles, 9 assisted tackles and 7 pass deflections.
